Regulated and Insured
Gemini is a U.S. company regulated as a limited purpose trust company by the New York State Department of Financial Services.
Each GUSD corresponds to a U.S. dollar held by Gemini in accounts at U.S. FDIC-insured bank accounts and money market funds holding short-term U.S. treasury bonds and maintained at a custodian. The cash portion of these GUSD reserves may be eligible for FDIC “pass through” insurance for Gemini customers, in the event of the failure of a bank holding the U.S. dollar deposit portion of the GUSD reserves.
No compromises: Audit reports of the GUSD reserve are published monthly by an independent registered accounting firm, BPM LLP. The Ethereum smart contract has been audited by Trail of Bits, a leading information security research and development firm.
There are no fees to buy or sell GUSD with U.S. dollars on the Gemini Exchange.2
